Alive! ’75 – A Tribute to KISS will perform at SCCC

in News, Performing Arts

Alive! ’75 is a live concert concept performance that brings the KISS Alive! album to life within a period-specific 1975 atmosphere. Alive! ‘75 will be performing two amazing shows at Sussex County Community College on Friday, November 7 and Saturday, November 8. Both shows will be held in the Performing Arts Center and begin at 8 p.m.

The show brings so much more than just guys dressed as KISS playing KISS songs. The overall experience is designed to take you back to 1975, to see, hear and feel what a 1975-era KISS performance was really like. Alive! ’75 promises to blow their audience away. There are a significant number of “wow” moments throughout the show. Beginning with the opening power-chords of “Deuce” and continuing right on through the closing crescendo of “Let Me Go, Rock and Roll”, this event promises to leave the audience thoroughly entertained and completely exhausted.

“We really wanted to deliver a complete experience – to bring folks back to this classic time in KISS-tory” says Anthony De Lucia, Jr., the show’s creator and producer. “Alive! ’75 is not a tribute band. It’s a full-on theatrical performance that creates the atmosphere and provides a raw and energized KISS concert experience like no other. We think it’s very unique and a pretty big deal.”

Behind the scenes, there is a bit of a nostalgic storyline as well. Everyone involved with the production is a lifetime KISS fan. And three of the show’s four cast members originally formed and performed in what may prove to be the very first KISS-a-mania tribute band in history way back in 1979! All seasoned, professional working musicians, they bring a passion and an enthusiasm to their craft that is reflected in their performance.
